Where to find best BBQ in Florida

Summer is here and the time is right for some grilling. It’s a favorite outdoor activity but occasionally you want to enjoy barbecue that someone else grills.

There’s something about Floridians and barbecue. Maybe it’s because the term “barbecue” — the English word from the Spanish “barbacoa” — has origins from the language of the Taíno people in the Caribbean and the Timucua of Florida, who called it “barabicu.”

Here’s some of our favorite barbecue to try from a restaurant or food truck.

Palm Beach County steakhouse king Ralph Lewis opened a roadside barbecue trailer as a Memorial Day pop-up in 2019. But by popular demand, the ‘cue stand took root in that spot just across a side street from his family’s iconic, 1947-era Okeechobee Steakhouse.

It’s now a popular weekend stop for Texas-style barbecue, me ats smoked over Florida oak and cherry wood, plus steakhouse-worthy fixings. The stand’s menu offers 13-hour smoked brisket, baby-back and St. Louis-style ribs, pork belly burnt ends, tender smoked turkey, plus sandwiches like the Boss Hog (pulled pork, burnt ends, smoked onions and house-made Southern bourbon barbecue sauce on a potato roll).
